Can anyone explain what difference it makes to install them after you unhooking and level? I have always used mine in conjunction with 4 cheap yellow chalks and put them in before I unhooking and take them off after I am hooked up again.

I can understand needing to snug them up after the tires cool, but other than that I don't think it really matters.

I'm curious to see what chocks people are using for the White Hawks.

I use 4 Husky Wheel Chocks and they've maintained the stability of the trailer.

I can tell you from experience they loosen up.......mainly if you are adjusting/leveling front to rear anything more than 6" up or down from the height you originally unhitched. We dry camp at iowa speedway on a hillside I level with 8" on side to side and 24" under the tongue! and i use 4 wedge style chocks and put the ones between the wheels before i unhitch and by the time im level front to rear my center chocks are loose! and not just alittle.

I know the BAL chocks are not designed for preventing rolling, but they actually do, at least in some cases. On our last TT, we used the BAL deluxe units. The very first time out, I forgot they were still in place, and attempted to pull away, thinking I was all ready for the road. We had a Chevy Suburban at the time, with a 29 foot TT, and it would not move at all. Granted I did not gun it, but the trailer refused to budge. Got out thinking that I must have left a chock in front of a wheel, but found only the BALs. Removed them, and trailer pulled away easily. A rare case of the product being a little better than the advertisement claims, IMHO.
